1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. In a large bowl, mix the oil, maple syrup, garlic, cumin and nigella seeds, oregano, and cayenne. Add the nuts and mix well to coat the nuts. Sprinkle and toss the nuts with the salt. Spread the nuts on a large rimmed baking sheet.

4. The nuts can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 10 days.
